Westworld

Boy, have we got a vacation for you...

Beginning tonight on HBO, enter a world of mystery, intrigue, and adventure! In this reimagining of Michael Crichton's 70s classic,  "Westworld" sees how the future of theme parks has turned a virtual reality fantasy into reality. Instead of building a time machine, Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) has brought the past to the present with the creation of Westworld: An adult theme park, wherein guests dress as old westerners and saddle up for a day out in the enclosed surroundings of the wild west. To make the experience more life-like, the park is populated with androids, programmed to act and behave according to their historical environment. Guests to the park indulge in their surroundings, whether that be horseback riding in the mountains, letting their sexual fantasies run wild at the brothels, or having a quick draw at the local bars. You can be anyone you want to be in Westworld, and the AI are there for your every need.... until now.

When one of the androids begins to question her place in the artificial land, things in Westworld begin to take a turn...

 

In this world you can be whoever the fuck you want...

Evan Rachel Wood and Thandie Newton are about to be the textbook definition of perfection.

Three years in the making and it finally arrives... I am so damn excited for tonight's premiere.

yeah they already finished filming it back in August!!! it's the final season... it'll air when Westworld finishes!! Can't fucking wait

About to watch Westworld right now!!

just finished the premiere!! damn that was good!!!!! loved the ending Biggrin so creepy

wow don't go on the imdb boards for this... toxic. people will whine and bitch about anything.

Loved the premiere and can't wait for next week! There was so much to cover in the first wee and I think they did a great job introducing us to the world. I have a feeling this is going to be a crazy theory fandom type of show like Lost, except this time everything will fit together nicely as they've had plenty of time to map everything out ahead of time.  It should be a fun ride. 

Episode two is absolutely solid, albeit a tad slower than the premiere. This show is seriously something special.

They released it early. Smile

Yeah, solid indeed.  I was nervous at first though.  I loved the first episode so much, I had really high expectations for the second one  I was pretty much like, "please, don't fuck this up.. please, don't fuck this up..." as it was airing.  Hah.  Definitely looking forward to the next one.  Has anyone else heard they have a five-season arc planned already?   

Episode three is fantastic. Dr Ford's new storyline is going to be wild and I'm already hooked based on what little we know. And that fucking sound during the Wyatt encounters?? It was horrific, but everything.

I seriously can't get enough of this show.

this show just keeps on getting better and better!! fuck yes HBO... so much better than GoT.

also jesus the fan theories on this show are insane... i should not have looked at the imdb boards

Ok I like it but don't you ever say it's better than GOT again.

EPISODE SIX

Everything. Every-fucking-thing.

My baby Elsie better be okay though. Or I'm coming for throats.

Ok, that was good.

Maeve >>>>

Ok, that was good.

Maeve >>>>

She's incredible. Thandie better get an Emmy nomination.

this show is fucking incredible. that twist in episode 7. the multuple interweaving storylines... last sunday's ending!!!! We finally know who Arnold is :O it's just so smart and absolutely insane!!!! I really hope the finale this sunday delivers Biggrin

Ok I like it but don't you ever say it's better than GOT again.

it's better than GOT. #sorrynotsorry

holy shit that was a mind fuck of a finale!!!

I wish I hadn't read the theories a few weeks ago, because the one people were most talking about turned out to be very much true (that there are multiple timelines and william=mib). Even still, that was a great finale!!! Maeve... oh wonderful maeve... I was so sad that her storyline turned out to be just that: a storyline someone has been writing for her this whole time. To realize you still are being controlled after all she has done.... I do hope she reached consciousness when she decided to get off the train before it left because i think her narrative said something about her taking the train out of Westworld. So that could be interesting. Also they definitely hinted at multiple worlds (the samurai guys? the fact that Felix wrote: Park 1, Zone #, Section # ... makes me think they have another park in the works). 

The highlight of the episode was definitely Ford and Dolores' stories finally converging in the big arc. Dolores finally reaching the middle of the maze... finally understanding her place in the world, all because Ford wanted to continue what Arnold had already begun. He was finishing Arnold's work this entire time, and he had to make the ultimate sacrifice at the end for Dolores to reach full consciousness. Now things will get interesting... especially with the army of hosts Ford released upon the guests. Man seeing William/MIB get shot at the end... the pure delight in his face when he realized the bullet actually pierced him and hurt hahaha hilarious.

Now that the hosts are beginning to turn, Season 2 looks like its gonna be a bloodbath. It almost feels like this whole season was a prequel to the main events. It wasn't perfect in itself... I found myself bored a lot of the times with having to watch character loops over and over again, but the theories and concepts that worked, were amazing!! Maeve's storyline was a fun little action-packed side thing.... and William/MIB's story was kinda just meh in the end. Didn't care for either his past or present storyline. And I felt the reveal was half-assed too... like they almost made it too obvious in the last episode and the whole first half hour of the finale. But Ford, Bernard, and Dolores had great arcs imo!!

Can't wait to see what they do with Season 2!!! I hope we get to see the possible other parks that are in the works.... that would be really cool! But in the meantime, the Westworld Robot Rebellion is upon us.

WHen you find out what the maze truly is

damn

Perfection.
